Jennifer Lopez In Maria Lucia Hohan – Muhammad Ali Celebrity Fight Night XIX

Jennifer Lopez In Maria Lucia Hohan - Muhammad Ali Celebrity Fight Night XIX

Jennifer Lopez attended the Muhammad Ali Celebrity Fight Night XIX at JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort & Spa in Phoenix, Arizona on Saturday evening.

She turned to one of her favourite designers, Maria Lucia Hohan, for her red carpet look.

In what is becoming quite common when it comes to JLo, I feel like this nude tulle halter dress with black lace and satin accents is too immature for the singer/actress.

I don’t like the dress to begin with, I mean, who would want to wear a dress which looks like you are wearing a strapless dress over a black lace bra?

In fact, the only thing I like about this look are her Christian Louboutin ‘Pivichic’ striped PVC and patent leather pumps. The gold Christian Louboutin ‘Cleo’ clutch looks like a last minute addition to add some spice to her look.

Emma Roberts In Maria Lucia Hohan – Warner Bros. And InStyle Golden Globe Awards After Party

Emma Roberts in Maria Lucia Hohan - Golden Globe PartyPresenter Julia Roberts was noticeably absent from much of the 2013 Golden Globes red-carpet action, but her niece Emma Roberts brought out her best pose for the Warner Bros. and InStyle Golden Globe Awards After Party at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California on Sunday evening.

The up-and-coming starlet mixed girly with all-grown-up in her black, strapless party dress by Maria Lucia Hohan paired with a sparkling headband, earring and Lemaresca clutch.

While this frock yet again played to the sheer and solid trend with its illusion middle and diaphanous layers, it all seemed a bit vampy and overwrought for this PYT.

The red stilettos and matching red lipstick were just too literal.

It wasn’t the most compelling entrance we’ve seen from our Best Emerging Designer of 2012.

Brittany Snow In Maria Lucia Hohan – 2013 People’s Choice Awards

Brittany Snow In Maria Lucia Hohen - 2013 People’s Choice Awards

Brittany Snow had a mellow yellow moment on the red carpet at the 2013 People’s Choice Awards hosted last night at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California.

But the ‘Pitch Perfect’ actress’s look was far from subtle. The plunging neckline and illusion side panels of her Maria Lucia Hohan gown showed just the right amount of skin for a sultry yet still sophisticated flair. Our Emerging Designer of 2012 is starting out 2013 on a very promising note with this look.

The ankle-grazing length of this dress was also so delightful to see, and it served to show off Brittany’s silver Giuseppe Zanotti heels all the more.

She kept the rest of her accessories minimal with Norman Silverman earrings and a silver Judith Leiber clutch, which preserved the integrity of the dress’ impeccable draping.

A trendy bob and the pop of a petal pink-pout completed the look.

Emerging Designer 2012 – Maria Lucia Hohan

Maria Lucia Hohan is the best designer you never really heard of, but her designs have graced the red carpet at many major events this year, including the Oscars.

The Romanian designer has a client list many emerging designers would kill for including Jennifer Hudson, Stacy Kiebler, Ashley Tisdale, Jennifer Lopez and her biggest fan is Taylor Swift.

That doesn’t mean she makes sparkly gowns. Quite the opposite; her ethereal, elaborately draped, often pleated gowns are sequin-free.

Known for her illusion paneling and figure flattering silhouettes, it’s no wonder starlets like Taylor Swift keep Maria on speed-dial.

Taylor Swift In Maria Lucia Hohan – Grammy Nominations Concert Live!

Going back to her Tennessee roots, Taylor Swift reaffirmed her place as country-pop’s reigning princess at the Grammy Nominations Concert in Nashville last week.

The songstress looks like a dream in a lacy frock by Maria Lucia Hohan and a pair of nude peep-toe pumps.

The a-line dress complements Taylor’s willowy frame, while the lace pattern in the perfect shade of winter white is reminiscent of sweetly intricate snowflakes.

Plus, Taylor’s lush blonde bangs frame her face in a way that is both modern and vintage-inspired.

You can buy Taylor’s Maria Lucia Hohan dress from Luisa via Roma.
